Shut up and get excited for 'Saints Row IV'

StickSkills said, "The Third celebrates the game-ness of the genre, ratcheting every aspect upwards beyond the expected norm. Playing it is like going on vacation with your id at the wheel; it's loads of fun with a good amount of weird sprinkled throughout. So now that we have confirmation of Saints Row IV, the obvious question is, 'should we be excited?' My answer is a resounding 'hell yes.'" (PC, PS3, Saints Row 4, Xbox 360)

If it wasn't called Saints Row people would be excited for it.

Could also be that GTAV is just around the corner... I think most people have it as a higher priority for sandbox gaming. If it wasn't set to come out soon, people (in general) would probably be paying more attention.

The problem with Saints Row (After 3 anyways), is that it tries to be so.many.things that it basically has no soul, nothing which makes it distinct, it's basically a clusterfu** and they're trying to push it so hard down our throats it stopped being funny from the first trailer.

Well I bought Saints Row 3, and it was called Saints Row. After playing it, I'm not excited about Saints Row 4.

You obviously didn't play it co-op lol.
Buzz7S  +   988d ago
@MysticStrummer I'm sure he would of, if he wasn't forced to enter an online pass code to play with a friend, online or even LOCALLY. Yes, locally. You can't play co-op via system link within the same household if you don't have an online pass.

I'm really sorry, but I'm so not excited for the game. I don't give a crap if you added new game play and the game looks EXACTLY the same, also the area that you are going to play in looks like Steelport.

You better upgrade those visuals and art style if you are going to bring the game to the next-gen and current-gen consoles because I am not paying for something that was supposed to be DLC for SR3.

Are you drunk again Grim?
TheGrimOfDeath  +   989d ago
I'm perfectly sober man, maybe you're drunk? Need those glasses checked out?

Also to the guy below me (FlameBaitGod), yes COD has looked the same, but there has been many new small differences that make the game interesting with each new COD, also each story is set in different locations not like SR4 (Which looks like it's set in SteelPort again).

Another reason is that I have only bought BO2 so I don't give a shit for COD. I play with friends for fun and shit.

Yeah, I never thought I'd say this, but...I think I've beaten enough people with dildos for a good long while.

Game is basically a 8-10 hour gimmick. None of the stuff in the trailer looked appealing

You've already decided how long it will be? -_-

Didn't excite me, it was just "look how zaney and wacky we are!" same graphics, same gameplay, same everything really, with a few more mascot costumes (hooray...).

I'm not hating on the game, it's just not my thing, I like dumb crap as much as the next guy, but I thought the gameplay was sub par and the storyline was horrible (in saints row 3, MY OPINION)

It should have just stayed like SR2: Street gangs and wacky but not too wacky. SR3 was good but just ridiculous. ^^^This? LOL don't even get me started.

Just give me GTA V on PC with 50+ player online, customizable game modes like in San Andreas MP where we can atually have scripts or whatever to make any game modes we want, like Cops N Robbers in SA-MP where it saves your cash & progress to the server, total freedom.. and i will be happy.

Saints Row is getting boring.

How about NO.
JsonHenry  +   989d ago
I guess I am the only person who liked playing SR3 in co-op. That game was so over the top I actually beat it over the course of 2 months just playing bits here and there. It wasn't so serious that I had to play it all the way through in one sitting which is nice to have once in a while.
Games4ever  +   989d ago
Shut up and take my money. Never again Saints Row !!!

Was a fan of the first two games. But after SR3 and now this? This series is dead for me.
STICKzophrenic  +   989d ago
I still haven't finished the second one, and the third one is still in the wrapper lol.
You couldn't finish SR2 yet you bought SR3 only to have no intention of ever removing it from the original manufacturer's sealing?

You're trying to hard,,,, just saying.

I bought SR3 as part of a B2G1 free sale, while I was in the process of playing SR2 co-op.

I had intentions to finish 2 and play 3, I just haven't got around to it yet.

I'm sure there are plenty of people with a backlog of games to play.
That,,, makes sense lol.... Sorry about that, i really thought you were just trying to troll SR4 lol
lyvon  +   989d ago
Officially done with the series.

SR1 and SR2 are the only games I recognize to be Saints Row games. SR3 was the beginning of its downfall, and with this game, you have to be kidding me...

won't even bother with this, SR3 was too wacky and stupid for me, this is way beyond that.
Derekvinyard13  +   989d ago
Lets at least see more vids before we call this game a mess
ChrisR2131  +   988d ago
The first two Saints Row games were great open world gang games. They were sometimes silly but serious at the same time. The third game is fucking ridiculous in every way possible, and now this. The fourth game is going to be nothing more than DLC that should have been added to three and a poorly slapped together story. As far as I'm concerned, This is going to suck and I won't buy it. I'll keep my more for something that has promise.
wenaldy  +   988d ago
Why are they so obsessed with purple/ violet colour? Ewwww...
porkChop  +   988d ago
That's the official color of the 3rd Street Saint's...
RedDeadLB  +   988d ago
They've overdone it with absurdity. I have finished SR2 with my friend and enjoyed it thoroughly. SR3, not so much. Too much absurdity can hurt. I don't even have a pinch of interest in SR4.
GrumpyGamer  +   988d ago
liked SR1, Loved SR2, Enjoyed the first 2 hrs of SR3 then it seemed like they had run out of ideas now it looks like they are building a full game out of a piece of DLC no not for me
porkChop  +   988d ago
I loved SR1 and SR2. SR3 was good, but a bit too crazy. SR4 just looks beyond stupid. I'm not interested in the slightest. They clearly didn't listen to all the fan feedback after SR3 saying that everyone wanted them to go back to the formula in SR2.

Reminds me of what happened with CoD actually. Everyone loved CoD4. They wanted a bigger and better game that followed that formula. Instead the CoD series just kept getting way more convoluted, unbalanced and stupid. The story in CoD4 was great. It was believable, and even realistic to a certain extent. It felt like a real war story, something you could imagine really happening. Then came MW2 and 3, and Blops 1 and 2. Seems like the same thing is happening with Saint's Row now.
isarai  +   988d ago
No thanks, this isn't fanboy mentality talking(don't really see why you have to chose a side, i love just about all sandbox games) but it's just too immature for taste. It's like they consult a horny middle school student for all their humor and whack aspects. just doesn't appeal to me anymore after Saints Row 2
JasonXS12  +   988d ago
How about no.
black911  +   988d ago
Didn't Saints Row 3 just come out?
aLucidMind  +   988d ago
Yeah; there was a report that they stopped production on a DLC for SR3 and decided to make it a major part of the next game. Either it's a cash-grab game, or they're trying to kill the IP by ignoring that we loved the balance between serious and insanely silly that SR2 had. SR3's biggest appeal was purple dildos >_<
TBONEJF  +   988d ago
first why would anyone shut up and be excited of a game that copies from GTA
HonestDragon  +   988d ago
Here's my response: shut up and stop telling me how I should feel. The first two Saints Row games are passable, but the third one was a slack-jawed mess coupled with immaturity and over-the-top nonsense that just ruined any potential to cement it as its own great game. Now with this fourth installment, I can't help but think that over-the-top is really all that Saints Row has going for it. The problem with this formula, though, is that if you rely on it too much then people are going to get sick of it.

I don't know whats the problem people , it looks like a good DLC to me.

Can not get excited about a game that is nothing more than an expansion pack
lilmissdiva339  +   988d ago
I've played saintsrow 1 and 2 and they are good I didn't like the third one at all the storyline was all messed for saints row 4 I see there still in stillport which is crap.I don't think they have a chance against grand theft auto we know who the winner is.
Kratoscar2008  +   988d ago
GTA is too generic, i will take this (SR4) over the top fun sandbox game any day.

GTA is a VERY overrated series, Red Dead Redemption is and will be the best Sandbox game this gen.
